6 Obsessions: Designer Black Leather Handbag

As the seasons start to change (or are supposed to...it's still 100 degrees here in LA), I always like to cultivate some points of focus for my wardrobe. This week, I will be posting 6 of them total...and this is my last one. This post features my ultimate unicorn piece: the perfect black, leather designer handbag.  Since these can get up into the 4 digits, my attempts to find these in the clearance racks are vast, yet very unsuccessful thus far. But someday: I WILL get one of these beauties.

I'm SO happy that ASOS Curve now has some plus size jewelry harnesses...this would look SMASHING over simple black dresses.  Click the Polyvore above to get all the shopping details!

6 Obsessions: Leather

As the seasons start to change (or are supposed to...it's still 100 degrees here in LA), I always like to cultivate some points of focus for my wardrobe. This week, I will be posting 6 of them total. This post features Leather, something that makes me swoon every time.  There are some MAJOR plus size pieces in this category right now and I'm trying hard not to drool.

Leather


I'm pretty much over the moon for the perforated pleather waistcoat from Navabi...I can imagine a million outfits with this one.
And because it is the most epic of epic leather jackets, this one by Lane Bryant's 6th & Lane category gets its very own image.  How PERFECT is it?  Tara Lynn looks amazing and I will continue to dream about this piece.

Black Lace - This is a goth staple, but for Fall I like elegant hints of it, rather than draping head to toe.  How amazing is this bra from Lane Bryant?
I need it like YESTERDAY.   To get the rest of the details of the look, click on the polyvore image for full shopping details!

Nightsky

This past weekend, the family and I headed to the Santa Anita racetrack to check out the 626 night market, an Asian-themed night market and food festival.  It was SUPER crowded and quite large, so we only checked out about 20% of the offerings, but it was super fun.  Being 100 degrees, I needed an outfit that was comfortable and cool.  I reached for my new birthday Converse (black LEATHER!) and Babooshka kaftan.  Before we left, we snapped some shots.




Outfit Details: 

Mesh Dress: Babooshka
Under Dress + Rings: ASOS
Necklace: Cheap Monday
Sunglasses: Domino Dollhouse
Shoes: Eastbay

We also took some yummy snap shots of our food scores + Remy enjoying her self.

We are quite lucky that we've been able to get out, even with an infant, and this event was entertaining. There's another one in Orange County in October. Check out their site for dates.

+ Size Models at NYFW



Two of my favorite designers, Zana Bayne and Chromat, featured plus size models at this past week's New York Fashion Week.  I wore a Chromat mask for Halloween '13 and am SO EXCITED about the possibility of wearing some of their structural pieces on my body (you can currently buy custom up to a size 20).  No word yet if they are expanding their sizes further than that, but Zana Bayne, on the other hand, has always welcomed bodies of all sizes.  Her expansive collection of leather harnesses and gear have been available in custom sizing since she created her line years ago. Let's hope that other designers follow suit.  As always, I encourage us to put our money where our mouth is and show these two designers our support by opening our wallets.

Army of Me

This past week I turned 33 years old and the fam went out to a casual dinner during the week. I wanted to take my top out for a spin, as it was a present from my husband.  I also haven't worn fitted jean/pants in FOREVER so it still feels strange to see, but I love these waxy stretch denim styles and am happy to find a pair that works.  Remy wasn't used to the lipstick and kept trying to grab it!  Luckily, the Hourglass lipstick in Icon didn't budge.  Onto the pics/deets!

Waxy Black Denim Jeans: Simply Be
Hair Stick: Etsy


Here are some images of my delicious birthday dinner from Slater's 50/50.  Drink is a Dark 'N Stormy, Veggie burger with onion rings and garlic cheese dip, and a coconut cookie ice cream extravaganza.  It was awesome to have a little one to celebrate with and I cannot wait until she can have some cake with me.

Summerblink


Last night we headed out to a movie, as a family, for the first time.  A theater by Disneyland offers 1 showing a week that is baby friendly, complete with extra lighting and changing tables!  So we headed out in the 100 degree heat to check out the movie Lucy with Remy.  Here is my outfit, compiled of my current favorite summer duds.





Outfit Details:
Dress - Babooshka
Bralette - Lane Bryant
Sandals - Circus by Sam Edelman
Sunglasses - Wonderland LA

Remy also wanted to show off her tough girl nose scratch (from wrestling her stuffed elephant with a bit too much vigor) and brand new cat ear headband!
